Hmmm, interesting. Dewey, what's the answer? It was your reversa that I
photographed and listed on the web page. (And perhaps it's now time for a
public admission that I killed it over the winter.)

On the other hand, Kris, after looking at your photos, I bet they're the
same plant and that mine was just a lot younger and so had leaves that were
slightly different shaped. Unfortunately, it died before I was able to
find out.

Les/Kris,
Can't understand the confusion... Pictures on both sites are A. reversa,
the way I see it... The only difference is maturity.

Maturity has caused a lot of taxonomic confusion over the years... Just
look at Monstera deliciosa... the juvinal was known as Philo. pertusum for
years.....
